The Bismarck Cancer Center hosted the tenth annual Applefest this weekend. The fun filled weekend includes every imaginable way to eat apples, tractor rides, petting zoo's, and much more. 
 
All of the funds raised goes back to the patients' care and treatment programs. Odin Tollefson has overcome multiple rounds of cancer and has nothing but kind words for the care he received. 
 
"I cant say enough about it. Its just a super place," said Tollefson.
 
Jim Josephson was a patient at the Bismarck Cancer Center about ten years ago and still comes out to show his support. 
 
"I was treated superbly...and I'm still alive," said Josephson while chuckling.
 
Duane Aman is a volunteer at the cancer center who gives a little extra to brighten others' day. He chauffeurs patient to and from their appointments in his convertible Camaro. 
 
"I'm just a driver" Aman says humbly. The reason he gets behind the wheel every day explains why he volunteers. 
 
"I know what its like. I went through it with my wife for four and a half years.. and I had cancer myself at the same time she did and I know how hard it is," said Aman. He says this is way of giving back to the people that helped him. He plans to keep driving patients to their appointments for as long as he can.
